PSYC 380 - Neurolaw: “My Brain Made Me Do It”

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
This course critically examines the increasing presence of brain-based evidence in the courtroom. We explore how advances in our understand of the human brain, as well as its maturation, have contributed to both individual legal cases and public policy, going so far as to even influence rulings of the Supreme Court. The course also takes a critical look at how and when Neurolaw is being misused by improving students scientific literacy regarding the strengths and limitations of various neuropsychological tests and neuroimaging techniques. While there is an emphasis on the brain and its function, students with interests in Law and/or Public Policy are encouraged to enroll. Abigail Baird.

One 2-hour period.
